. this is essentially a republican designed plan. it was modelled after what governor romney did in massachusetts. there were a lot of democrats who didn't particularly like that, me among them. the insurance companies are going to get 30 to 40 million new customers. if the president makes a suggestion that might help us in the transition, i think it's fair for the insurance companies to remember that they're the big winners in this and do their part. >> what else do you think the white house needs to do moving forward to get this on the right track? admittedly they've made gaffe after gaffe here? >> this is all about good implementati implementation. the reason a lot of democrats are so upset is because we supported the law and since we support the law we know in order for it to work it has to be implemented well. of course that's an exec tif function. this is about smoothing out the wrinkles, acknowledging when there is an implementation issue and then taking on the responsibility energetically to fix it asap. >> we're showing the website and the president has said people can sig

or massachusetts. we knew that historically numbers are often low. even when things are going well. and because people are checking out their options. so for example, in massachusetts, we know that in the month, the first month of enrollment there, only just about 100 people enrolled in coverage, which was.3% of the total people that ended up enrolling. again, i think it's important to remember. we are early on in the process. that's why our get covered america campaign has been out there educating, even when there have been these issues. but i do think we should all feel some urgency recognizing the next four months will be more important than ever and to be out there educating consumers can what's available to them. >> i want to get to good news theer relative to the 14 state market plays. "the washington post" is reporting there's been a november surge there with enrollment nearly doubling since last month. what are they doing right to get that pace? >> well, look, i think it's no surprise that in the state that are implementing their own marketplaces, things are going pretty well. that's ho

, alex, is to understand that when we rolled out medicare part d when massachusetts did its health care, universal health care system, they had similar delays. there were peaks that april came well into the open enrollment and certainly part did was not without its bugs in the system. the idea is not to point a finger of blame but extend a hand of help on behalf of congress. let's get together and get this thing running. people want to embrace the benefits of the act. i hear it more and more. look, i've been asked to vote 46, 47 times over to repeal the affordable care act by the republican majority in our house. they have wanted to destroy this opportunity for our americans to have health care benefits since its inception. and it's time to really get to work and get the system running. >> representative tomko, is there an educated guess as to what the numbers may be when they're released officially in about a month? do we have any idea, speculation how many people are signing up? >> you know, it's hard to say. in my hope state of new york that has its own exchange, we're at 160,000 or
